Make Mercury retrograde your friend with these tips

The season of Scorpio is upon us. Even though this sign is associated with the 8th house of death and regeneration and is known as one of the three negative months in the mystical kabbalah, Storm wants us to remember that we can use this energy to transform or let go of what no longer serves us.

It is our season of shedding and preparing for new growth.

Big picture is, the Sun lands in the 9th house of beliefs and this signifies that this Scorpio season is about transforming belief systems that are outdated and no longer make sense. On a personal level Scorpio gives us the fortitude to jettison inherited dysfunctional family behaviors and beliefs that are stunting our personal growth. In other words, like the snake that represents the sign, we need to shed our old skin in order to transform into something new and fits us better.

Thankfully the Sun makes only positive aspects throughout the month. This allows us to develop our identities through friendships, networking, and our creativity. The best day to do this inner and outer work is November 11, 2019 when the Sun conjoins Mercury in retrograde. Enhance your self-discovery with an Emotional Balance Blessed Herbal candle and Affirmation Goddess candle burning brightly on your altar.

Yes, Mercury spends most of the month retrograde. This means that communication will be challenging. You should avoid making major decisions or purchases, electronics and automobiles may be problematic, and travel plans may go awry. However, despite its notable tensions, Mercury retrograde gives us an opportunity to reflect on the last few months and make a course correction if necessary. For protection during Mercury Retrograde burn our Mercury Retrograde Neutralizer Blessed Herbal candle or our Hoo doo Van Van candle.

On the other hand, Mercury makes only beneficial aspects through the month that will help us strategize and make the changes we need to make in our lives, especially towards the end of the month when Mercury turns direct and trines Neptune and sextiles Saturn. Mercury trine Neptune (Nov. 28) gives us a creative boost and Mercury sextile Saturn (Nov 29) is good for activities that require focus and concentration.

When it comes to love and money in November, we find Venus feeling very frisky. The same ole same ole becomes stifling in your relationships. Time to take some risks and try different activities that will make your relationship more exciting. We recommend Hoo Doo Adam and Eve or Wicked Witch Mojo Red Stilettos candles to spice up your love life.

On the financial front, you may need to be a tad more conservative with spending throughout November. Venus in Sagittarius can cause excessive and impulse shopping. We know you want to show your love through gifts, but we all got limits and should respect them. To protect the credit score in 2020, create a realistic budget and track your spending. Avoid financial offers or investments on November 14th. Venus forms a nasty square to deceptive Neptune and scammers will be on the prowl. We recommend Protection Blessed Herbal and Hoo Doo Fiery Wall of Protection candles throughout November for financial matters. You need to protect your money from dubious individuals and yourself.

Check your motivation and choices this month. Mars spends the first half of November weakened in relationship-oriented Libra. You need to give yourself that extra push and make sure you are not doing things to simply please others. On November 5th, Mars collides with Pluto in Capricorn and trouble may be on the horizon. It’s best to avoid places that are considered dangerous while this violent aspect is active. Closer to home, Mars square Pluto implies manipulation, feeling overpowered, and subjugated by powers beyond your control. Protection and Hoo Doo High John candles need to be in your November arsenal.

On November 18, 2019, Mars moves out of Libra and into its own sign of Scorpio and heads towards another outer planet showdown as he opposes Uranus. You may face difficulties with others and arguments will easily happen. Avoid reactive behavior or unexpected surprises will leave you feeling unsettled. Good advice no matter what is happening in the outer planets. Keep the peace with Blessed Herbal Happy Home candles.
